The article "The Hidden Cost of Incomplete Hydrodynamic Bearing Maintenance" appeared in the April 2017 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
Reliability and maintenance engineers can improve uptime and save money on both long-term maintenance and downtime costs by properly diagnosing and correcting bearing vibration issues when they exceed their acceptable limits. This requires inspecting the housing as well as the liner for wear, and replacing them as a pair when the housing is worn, so that wear-in between the mating surfaces can occur.
